There’s an increasing awareness of the importance of artists owning their masters for the long haul. And near the end of the episode, when N.O.R.E. was praising the Dipset for their indie ethos, Cam told N.O.R.E. that he “just got his masters back,” though he didn’t specify from which label. He said that he’s in the process of getting them back from Def Jam and Sony, so perhaps he’s referring to already receiving his Asylum or Epic Records masters, where he did two albums apiece.
He also gave the guys some game about the Taylor Swift tactic of re-recording one’s songs to have control over the new version of them. He said that he hasn’t yet done it for his work, but it was good information to share regardless (N.O.R.E. and EFN didn’t know about the maneuver). Amongst all the laughs, it was cool to hear some clever career advice from a rap veteran.
